I have been contacted by a constituent who is concerned that stray dogs in Bulgaria are routinely killed in an inhumane manner and that money provided by the EU for a stray dogs programme is not being spent as intended.
1. Can the Commission set out the terms upon which Bulgaria receives EU money for a stray dogs programme?
2. What monitoring of activities takes place?
3. What audit trail is provided by the Bulgarian authorities to the Commission for the expenditure of the funds?
4. What reports on the programme have been published?
